    you need to buy Distilled water!
    it must have that word on the label..distilled.

    and what kind of soil is it growing in?
    have you repotted it into pure peat or spagnum moss?
    or is it growing in the soil it came in?

    where did you buy it?

    and..you shouldnt be watering it "every couple of hours"
    it should be sitting in a tray of water, and should only need the tray re-filled.

    distilled water? i thought pure water was good, i get my water from a drinking water shop
    i got my vft from a green thumb nursery n VERY good condition and now its starting to die
    its still n the same 3 inch pot it came in, im too scared to repott it cuz i might mess up
    fresh growth? as n new leafs forming? yea but the new stalks are smaller than the ones already growing
    is there a way to post pics here? i have a pic of my vft but it was taken a week after i got it so its not exactly up to date

    In order to post a picture you must host the image somewhere online. If you go to Image Shack then you can upload your photo. Once uploaded you can click the "Image" button when posting in a topic and just cut and paste the link to your photo.


    In terms of your VFT... It sounds like it is acclimatising to me. You should definately check into your water source but you should expect smaller traps when changing environments especially when you purchase it in great condition from a good nursery.
